Update on Dane - Dane had an MRI completed yesterday which was normal. His sedation was slowly weaned off until he was fully awake. Once awake enough, he was attempting to write messages, mouth words...basically wanting to know when they would take the tube out of his mouth. The tube was removed and he was completely coherent, laughing and joking. We told him that he and Alex had been hit by lightening....he just chuckled. His night was a little more eventful with some confusion and debate (on Dane's part) about what he needed or didn't need. At one point he did say that he wants this challenge to be over. We are pretty sure he's playing too many video games. His other questions during the night...."what were my presenting symptoms?" In the typical Dane fashion he is trying to analyze what is going on! We, as his family, are extremely appreciative of all that has been done for the boys. Without the love and support of all of you, this journey would be much more difficult. Don't be surprised if Dane returns to school VERY quickly. He is doing fabulous, and other than a few small burns on his feet, and a very cool streak of missing hair (possibly in the shape of a lightening bolt) he is the same Dane we all know and love.
